The Tsolum River Restoration Society is creating a database that will map key areas where fish stranding is a regular problem so that we can measure the scale of this impact on fry and smolts as well as pro-actively visit these areas when the conditions are risky for stranding. We can deploy a team of fish salvagers if you have an area where you see fish that need to be reunited with the main channel. Please let us know before you move fish since the temperature in the isolated pools might be different from the main channel; if fish are moved from one temperature to another without allowing for acclimatization, they may not survive. We can help to assess the site, provide equipment, and safely re-locate stranded fish. Please contact Caroline Heim, Outreach Coordinator by phone at 250.897.4670 or by email at email@example.com more
